At my request, Ash Neuro was kind enough to dig through his old tape collection to find this recording. He remembers he recorded the gig in full on VHS and reports that his AMT #2 VHS tape was only played once in 15 years when it came time to rip it digitally in October 2017. Testing it in a player, he noticed that the frame was shaking, and he wasn’t sure if it was the tape or the header. When he sent it to his friend, it turned out that the tape was broken. Thankfully, his friend was able to save the cassette, but at the cost of the some of the footage. Ash said audience shots before the gig and “I Am Angie Bowie (Sine Waves)” were the only things he played when testing the footage, and at first I thought maybe what he played during the test was the only thing lost, but as it turns out, there were several other cuts throughout the video. Either more footage was lost from the tape breaking or he did not record the gig in full after all.
There’s a timestamp throughout the video; the audio strangely alternates channels throughout; “I Am Angie Bowie (Sine Waves)” cuts in, “Amethyst Deceivers” cuts in and has a big internal cut, two internal cuts on “Drip Drop,” “Ostia cuts out,” missing “I Don’t Want to Be the One” and “Bang Bang,” “Are You Shivering?” cuts in; other minor cuts throughout, like just before the “Ostia” poem”
Warts and all, thank you so much for this, Ash!
